The Way To Go High Low: How To Do Plaid & Not Look Like a Lumberjack

There’s no denying that there’s a special bond between the autumn season and plaid. I mean, it’s not really officially fall until we have donned our favorite checkered scarf or sweater, right? Plaid is just a part of autumn as is apple picking, pumpkin patch explorations and the rustic changing of the foliage.

However, the tartan pattern can be quite polarizing. One wrong move and you can go from style darling to lost lumberjack. That’s where we come in. To help you start fall off on the right fashion foot, we’ve rounded up the best plaid pieces in the market right now at all price points. You can make an investment in plaid, or pick up a piece at a bargain. This goes way beyond the stereotypical red button-down staple. From fancy heels to this season’s best frocks, these are the plaid pieces that will elevate your fall wardrobe to star status in no time.
